2016 TILT Summer Conference on Learning, Teaching, and Critical Thinking
High-Impact Educational Practices: Making a Difference in Teaching and Learning
Keynote: Valerie Otero
A number of high-impact educational practices have been shown by extensive research to benefit all students, including those from historically under-represented groups. While these practices can take many forms in courses and instructional approaches, they are defined by six characteristics, ranging from requiring high levels of intellectual and personal engagement to providing opportunities for knowledge transfer, application, and testing. The conference provides opportunities to explore a wide range of issues related to the use of high-impact practices (HIPs) to promote critical thinking and intellectual growth. The theme of the conference, "High-Impact Practices: Making a Difference in Teaching and Learning," calls attention to the six HIP characteristics that help our students to gain knowledge, skills, and experiences.
